    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a wonderfully insightful course that I would consider a positive impact on everyone's life. It really opens your eyes to the people and things around you.

    Course highlights:

    I learn so much and I wrote it all down but then my computer screen refreshed and I lost my good paragraph. So just let it be known, you will learn about theater, not just acting. This includes: dramaturgy, playwriting, set designing, performing, and learning how to interpret scenes of movies, photography, and ads in how they use set up and lighting to drive home the points of a piece. This class has you learning to work well with others. No Primadonnas here.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Show up, work hard, learn to love it, and set some time aside for it. A spring or Summer term would be a lot easier than doing this at the same time as something like American Heritage. This doesn't have to be a course requirement because it's wonderful, insightful, and fun. But it doesn't hurt to get GE credit for it too.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This isn't acting; this is theater. You learn about the ins and outs. You write your own plays and plan them out, then put them on. You also learn so much about working with others and how other's think. No primadona's here.

    Course highlights:

    Three years later, I still remember how there are four different types of people. Bue=extraverts who love people, green=introverts who love the little details and slow down to think things through logically for the best results, orange=people who live their lives through lists, and purple?=the immediate action go-getters who are ready to take the plunge into things without over analyzing it. I also learned about dramaturgy, and how to analyse photography to see what ads are manipulating you into thinking. Personally, I also learned how to design sets.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Give yourself some time because it can be a handful. Spring or Summer terms would be best. It is still worth it. Course requirement or not, it's a class that have a great impact on anyone's life.
